Sniped a Mile Marker hydraulic winch on FleaBay for 175. Found the MM adapter kit that comes with new solenoid valve, the hydro fittings for the LR steering pump, hoses and a remote control on the web for 345 and added a coupon code I found (googled) for another ten percent off with free shipping. So, fully kitted MM 10K hydraulic winch for roughly $600.

Played with the winch over the w/e. Turns out that I didn't need the entire adapter kit, that the solenoids are good on the winch and that the thing is more or less ready to bolt on and go. Even the cable is in good condition, although I'd prefer to have synthetic rope. The adapter kit does provide hydraulic hoses, and the wired remote for the solenoids. I'm thinking I'll return it since it is more than I need.

No. It's in here somewhere. I guess it's still under Ron's original advert.

Winner winner chicken dinner.
Not unusual was the big nail subbing for a bolt on the panhard rod bracket. The thing needs a few mods for it to work for my project, but it is a heck of a lot better than getting one from England, and it came with lots of goodies.

Did you get my email?

I want my nail back. The panhard kept dragging on the floor so that was my tempory solution. It has been there for 8-10 years or so.

I have the fourth matching yellow wheel and a bunch of other stuff here at my place for you.

Yup got your email. Just haven't moved the pics over to my regular computer. I want to send them to you via email, and my iPhone is barfing on them.
Need to do another sweep of your property.

Sway bars or no sway bars? I wonder. I guess if it's going to be driven on road it should have sway bars with disconnects. I would want to be able to remove the disconnected sway bars tho, so that engineering issue needs a solution.

The Rostyle (early RR 2 door steel) wheels just arrived today. They will go to the stripper, and then on to galvy and paint. So cool. Certainly not everyone's taste but they are definitely the wheel for a retro coiler hybrid.

------ Follow up post added April 6th, 2012 08:18 PM ------

Thinking about it, these wheels are the perfect candidate for another home brew Jeffrey Dahmer bucket. Save the stripper for the really awful jobs.

Probably. But I never claimed to have any taste!

Many thanks to Briggs for the visuals. Just imagine there's a 2A 109 wagon where the blue 2 door Rangie body is and you get the picture. Oh and there wouldn't be any bit of Welsh landscape in the background either.

You have no idea what a pain in the neck finding these things in the USA has been. Talk about unobtanium! Thankfully a fellow list member came thru with the goods. They're rivetted too, so it's a manly man's wheel.
They still seems somewhat common in Blighty, but shipping was gonna be killer.

Rostyles at the stripper. RRC SWB off to new owner. Parts run to Ron's in the AM. Paint order placed.
Next order of bizzy; fill all bolt holes on galvy-to-be parts with silicone. Clean up old tank and assess. Get V8 engine and trans un-assed from chassis. Weld in repair pieces on door frames so they can go to galvy.

Got the frame rear crossmember looking pretty dope. BFH and wood blocks did the trick.
Old tank rotten. Too bad.
Got Rons engine out and broke down some suspension bits and did a lot of wire brush work with the angle grinder.
